CPLA co-sponsors the Shine Your Light Walk

Emerson’s Walk was held to raise awareness for domestic violence, partner abuse, and sexual assault. Today, Take Back the Night takes on many forms in the lives women, men, the LGBTQ community, families, and so much more.

The walk began at 9 pm, Nov. 14 in the Little Building lobby. The walk then marched along the Boston Common.
